Use the NET LOCALGROUP command. Example:

NET LOCALGROUP "administrators" /ADD "domain\localadmins"

If you are using the UNATTEND.TXT method of automating your install, you can put this command in your CMDLINES.TXT file.

Hi,

There is a third party product called "Trusted Enterprise Manager", that will allow you to do this as well and manage all of the user accounts on your domain. There are several other functions this product will allow you to do as well, like createspecial user groups that have versious permissions that are not included within NT. You can have a look at this product using an eval. You can get it from one of two places that I know of, www.sunbelt-software.com or www.mddinc.com. Hope this helps.

regards,
Joe
